Monthly Meetings

Central Church
Our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month (2.00 pm for 2.15 pm start).
They take place at (click for a map) Central Church, Tor Hill Road, Torquay TQ2 5RN.

The full programme for the year can be seen by clicking the link on the right, and the dates are also listed below.

In addition to providing a varied programme of talks, monthly meetings are an ideal opportunity to check for the latest news on the noticeboards and to meet other members including group leaders either before the talk or during refreshments afterwards.

Members of other U3As are welcome, on presentation of a current membership card on entry.
Visitors are also welcome, for a charge of £1 (refundable if becoming a member at the meeting)

If you wish to comment on a talk or recommend a speaker for a future occasion please email Speaker Secretary.

We operate a loop system in the front left half of the hall. Please sit in this area if you are are hard of hearing.
